Notre Dame Cathedral at night (Paris)

In October of 2013, there was a scaffolding set up which enabled visitors to Notre Dame Cathedral to see the facade from a much high viewpoint than usual.  I was there as evening fell.  The sky was absolutely cloudless, the evening still warm.  Few tourists were around.   I enjoyed trying to hand-hold my camera while shooting under artificial lighting, which had an orange hue.

I looked with envy on these apartments from where occupants can enjoy the cathedral whenever they wish!

I also enjoyed photographing the street below in the evening.

Visitors to Notre Dame will know that there are lovely trees in the park to the east of the cathedral.
